Foodie Goodie | Soy Garlic Chicken.

If you're following me on Instagram, then perhaps you recall seeing this picture which I posted a few days ago.
Spell Y-U-M-M-Y! :)
Yep, that's my Home-cooked Soy Garlic Chicken, and my friends went gaga over that photo. I practically made a few of them drool while ogling on their smartphones, haha. One of my mommy friends at school even asked if I really was the one who cooked them, since they looked like they were bought from a restaurant (ergo, BonChon).

This dish is pretty easy to cook, actually. The recipe isn't even a secret because all you need is a pack of McCormick Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mix, which can easily be bought at groceries and supermarkets. They sell somewhere around Php 39, if I'm not mistaken.
KPop Chicken! 
The first time I came across this product was when I attended the 2PM Press Conference at The Manila Hotel. McCormick was one of the event sponsors, and their fried chicken dishes were among those served at the buffet table.

McCormick's Korean Fried Chicken Recipe Mix comes in four variants - Spicy, Kimchi, Bulgogi, and Soy Garlic, which is the one I used for that dish. Each variant has two packs inside it - Pack 1, which contains the batter mix, and Pack 2 which contains the flavored sauce. Oh, and the instructions are illustrated on the pack, too.
Easy as 1,2,3,4!
And with that, I need not go all the way to Alabang Town Center (where the nearest BonChon branch is located) whenever I feel like eating Soy Garlic Chicken. As long as I have chicken in the fridge and this recipe mix in my pantry, then I'm good!

I love Soy Garlic Chicken ever since I tried it in Bonchon but I'm sure the home made mix like you did is a lot better.

Soy garlic chicken is the best! I prefer that over the usual fried chicken. Maybe it's my Chinese roots (known to add soy sauce at practically every recipe) and my love for garlic that's why I prefer this :)

Sounds and looks good to me! I haven't seen this but maybe the new LARGE Korean supermarket that opened recently has it.

I have used several different McCormick's seasonings before but I haven't seen the Korean flavors yet. Can't wait to try the soy garlic!

I love the verity of McCormicks seasonings--I'm going to be on the look out for this one! We eat chicken every other day so mixing up the flavor is always fun.

The Savvy Mompreneur said...

This looks absolutely delicious (even though I'm now vegetarian). I will have to try the seasoning pack with fried tofu. Just might taste good... :)
